It’s been a busy day for movie posters as we’ve already brought you new sheets from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, Real Steel, and Green with Envy just to name a few. Now, we’ve got a few more promos to add to the pile thanks to the release of the first posters from Shark Night 3D and The Descendants. Neither sheet does anything particularly exciting as each seems content in reminding moviegoers that Shark Night 3D has sharks (and bikinis) and that Oscar-winner Alexander Payne’s (Sideways) The Descendants has, well, George Clooney.

For those unaware, David R. Ellis’ (Snakes on a PlaneShark Night 3D stars Sara Paxton, Chris Zylka, and Joel David Moore, and features a group of college friends whose weekend getaway quickly turns sour after an uninvited school of sharks show up. The film hits theaters on September 14th. On the other hand, Payne’s The Descendants is the tale of an indifferent husband (Clooney) who is forced to reevaluate his life after his wife is involved in a boating accident. Fox Searchlight is currently eyeing a December 16th release for the film which promises to be an awards-season contender. Hit the jump to check out the new posters.
